    Good Evening TW community in Colorado. I will be traveling in Colorado early June for work. However, my wife will be flying in with me for 5 days for a little R&R. Any suggestions or must see's while I am in the area? Will be traveling in a SUV (not offroad worthy). We may be moving from Washington to CO or WY in roughly a year for work. We would like to get a feel for the area and explore some nice passes. Appreciate any feedback.

    Be blessed my fellow Americans.

    It really just depends on what you're looking for. Denver is huge and lots of traffic. Red Rocks amphitheater should be on your list to check out up there. Springs is growing quickly (I think I heard it is/was the fastest growing city in the nation). Air Force Academy is fun, as is OTC (Olympic Training Center). Garden of the Gods is crowded but free. Just south of GOG is Red Rocks Open Space - in my opinion just as good as GOG but way less crowded. Great trails for hiking or biking. Head west up 24 into Woodland Park for a super chill mountain town. I love Woodland. Head south and check out Cripple Creek and do some gambling. Very pretty drive. You are basically driving around Pikes Peak. Which BTW, you can drive up to the top of 14,110 ft Pikes Peak (Bring a jacket - yes, even in June).

    Pueblo? Yah, I'd scratch that off your list. LOL

    Good luck with the trip, and enjoy our beautiful state!! :thumbsup:

    Pikes peak is a great drive as is mount evans.

    Lots of great day hikes in the frontal range.

    Red rocks for a concert

    I typically stay in westminster... If you are looking for a nice place that isn't downtown

    Coors field.

    A mountain drive

    Love me some denver

    what part of Colorado you planning? Pretty big state and varies from area to area. Any interests?

    If general front range (Denver area)

    Trail Ridge Road is nice drive, should have the road clear by then but we have had a great snow year. Up and over with great views.
    x2 on Pikes Peak or Mt Evans drives
    x2 on something at Red Rocks amphitheater, either hike or even better, see a show.
    Denver area has some great places to see music.
    Head up to Boulder walk around Pearl.
    Nederland is west of Boulder, cool little town. Fly your freak flag.
    Rockies game
    Eldorado Canyon St park. Will need to pay to get in ($7 park fee.day) but good hikes in there.
    hike North Table mountain, view the city

    ^^^81, I live in Westminster.

    Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, The Broadmoor, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, and the Cog Railway are some more touristy things to do in The Springs. Just stay outta Southeast CoSprings and Fort Carson. :rofl:
